BACKGROUND/RELATED STRATEGIC GOAL:

David F. Culberson Fine Reduction Request:

This Fine Reduction Stipulation and Agreed Recommended Order involves a parcel located at 32 SE Taho Terrace, Stuart, FL 34997, Martin County, Florida.

On January 28, 2016, an Order Finding Violation was issued by the Code Enforcement Magistrate to David F. Culberson for the following violation(s): Section 21.106 - Enclosures, General Ordinances, Martin County Code.; Section 21.105 - Swimming Pools, General Ordinances, Martin County Code; and Section 67.201.A- Nuisance Declared: Weeds, Undergrowth, General Ordinances, Martin County Code.

Compliance was required by February 5, 2016 for the damaged pool enclosure and on February 29, 2016 for the overgrowth and unsanitary pool. On May 17, 2021, an Affidavit of Compliance/Accrued Fines was issued reflecting an outstanding fine of $380,800.00 plus costs in the amount of $575.00.
Staff had offered to reduce the lien amount to $16,430.00, representing ten percent of the value of the property: however, the Magistrate ruled that $5,000.00 is appropriate to settle the outstanding fines in this case.
